Very tired motel with shabby rooms and poor facilities that should not claim to be a resort or have 4 stars. And it's tacked onto the side of a beer factory. The facilities and experiences are 'gimmicky' are merely put on to satisfy the requirements of their claim to be a resort. The food in the restaurant was terrible, undercooked... More

I stayed at the Hunter Valley Resort with my boyfriend for a weekend away in July 2014. We stayed in a Vineyard Room for two nights (Friday and Saturday). Overall we were very impressed with the resort, mainly because of the great customer service the staff provided, but the rooms are quite basic and a little outdated, so if you... More

We booked one night here as friends had recommended the Hunter Valley as a place to see. The resort is vast and quite impressive when you turn up. Plenty of parking near your room, checkin was fast and easy. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They booked us onto a wine talk which gave us enough time to settle... More

We had a fantastic time staying at this resort! Beautiful landscape and a cozy room nestled in the centre. The staff were enthusiastic and lovely, as well as knowledgable on wine and accommodating to our needs. Being so close to the brewery and restaurant was also an excellent feature of our stay, we ate very well there! I would definitely... More

I recently enjoyed a three night package with my husband and friends at the Hunter Valley Resort and I must say the hospitality and friendliness of all the staff we came into contact with was wonderful. The Wine theatre experience was amazing I didn't realize what went into wine making, Terry was a wealth of information he was just amazing,... More

My partner took me here as a surprise getaway for a few days. The place is very simple and nothing overly fancy. The little porch at the back of every cabin was so sweet. The fields and fields of green that your could see was a bonus. The beds were not the most comfortable but we didn't mind. The service... More

My wife booked us what started as a lovely package deal weekend away which included two nights in a four star resort, free cheese tasting, breakfast etc. We arrived later in the afternoon and on approach were shocked that the place appeared quite old and dated, the room was no different and had a overpowering smell of eucalyptus oil which...

What a grossly unfair review. The facts are: 1) You were ‘sold’ this package by your travel agent, not us direct. 2) We are a country inn (as we advertise on our website), not a glam resort as were your expectations. 3) You mention you did not stay, however you kept the key and did not check out till the...

The three night package was excellent. Menu although limited, was of very good quality and well presented, we ate twice in the Restaurant and once in the Bistro. Rooms were spacious and well presented, enjoyed the rural view. Library was quaint, some great books. Management must look after the staff well, as all were very happy, and enjoyed their work...

My wife and I took a three night special package which was pretty good value. Our room, although large, was dated but the bed was comfortable and the linen and covers were clean and warm. Breakfasts were supplied and were quite satisfactory although the daily offerings did not change. A lunch was provided as part of our package with a... More

We found the staff very friendly, professional and their knowledge of the wine and region outstanding. The room was clean and comfortable with wonderful views over the vineyards. Our deal included a delicious buffet style breakfast each morning. We dined at the restaurant a couple of times - the food and service first class, as was the brewery bar food... More
